When did you start to play squash?
I started playing squash in late 2009, after finding out that that Racquetball was not my game.

What is your best memory about playing squash?
My best memory about playing squash is not one specific thing, but is a recurring event, that happens every time I specifically apply something that I have learned in a lesson. It could be a shot, court movement, or even just racquet preparation that makes a moment memorable.Sriram

How have you improved as a squash player working with me?
Prior to taking lessons with you, I had barely been able to properly play squash and had no knowledge of how to hit basic shots. However, there are two main things that I find I have improved on especially with you: court movement, and power shots. By ghosting, I can actually see where and how I need to move during the game. In the power shots, I have learned the importance of racquet preparation in power, as well as the importance of swing speed and accuracy.

What drill do you like best and why?
My personal favorite drill is a rail, down the backhand, because it tests your ability to draw back your arm and gain power, take a faster swing, but maintain control of racquet position.

What is your next squash goal?
My next squash goal is to improve my tournament performance by placing in higher positions and pushing myself in training as well as matches. I also want to begin to seriously incorporate more strategy into my game.
